Collections Management

This section of the toolkit will guide you through the following topics: choosing what to include in your archive collection; how to collect and/or create material for your archive; what information about your material [metadata] you need to keep; how to assess what you already have; and the policy documents and procedures you should have in place to effectively manage your collections and collecting activities in the long term. Your aim should be to create a focussed and useful resource that provides unique evidence of your organisation, group or interest (or all three!)
